2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is malty and roasty like a bitter coffee. Color is brown with a off-white head. Taste is smoky, first light sweet and the heavy bitter with an real bitter aftertaste with roasted notes. Somewhat unpleasant in it.

Very sweet malty aroma with notes of bread, straws and caramel. Beutiful nutbrown color with an OK off-white head though fast disappearing. The flavor is nice - but a little disappointing after the very nice aroma. The flavor is malty sweet with notes of roasted malts, bread, and some woodyness. It turns OK bitter in the end - with the woody dryness lingering. The body is somewhat thin.

(Bottle). Organic! Reddish brown colour, very good head. Roasted malts, toast, caramel, oak and pine wood in the aroma, some smokiness. Flavour is all malts + a slight smokiness, nice bitterness, well balanced. This is a good dunkel!

Rerate: Burned colormalt and chocolaty aromas.
Beautifull redbrown, ok head.
Some sourness and sharp edges from the dark malts - not unpleasant though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A big nose of toast malt – reminded me of a US micro more than a German beer. A little dusty and hints of chocolate. Crystal clear dark caramel brown color and big, big fluffy tan head. The flavor was mostly roasted malt. It was a little acidic and even sour in the middle though. Dry, bitter end. Quick profile, medium body and creamy mouth feel. The balance was a little off and that’s where it lost points with me. Raw and rough around the edges but I liked this overall. The taste did no live up to the appearance and nose.

Great aroma: you have the feeling laying in a box of roasted coffebeans while sniffing this beer. Awesome. Also the visiuality of this beer rocks, nice brown body with hints of red and a huge frothy head. When the sip...it’s disappointing after the former two points. Coffebeans and milkchocalate but very light. Oily finish - all in all a weak flavor. A bit stronger flavor and a nicer finish and this beer would be mine.
